Great pictures! incredible boats!

Y'all are really lucky to have such a large and historic club and that much community interest for such a great turnout and show.

I think the only thing could possibly compare to something like that is when the local model railroad club drags out all the N scale diorama sections to assemble a MONSTER lay out at the science museum.

I assume this event was also a multi club thing with lots of folks traveling in to participate?

Yes and no. The event itself is put on and hosted by the SFMYC alone but we have participants regularly coming from all over the West Coast; from British Columbia to Mexico and a number from points easterly. We even let Virginians play - so why haven't ya come out and brought a case wid'cha? hunh? hunh? Ya getz a bunch of your buds together and rent a bus for all your boats and ROAD TRIP!!! Think of all the mischief ya could get into!!

I have had to clean,/ wipe off my keyboard fourteen times (so far) from all the drooling I am doing. What a great collection of beautiful boats.

Thanks, Woodybob! It has held up well for an 11 year old paint job.
